Writer, actress and Planned Parenthood supporter Lena Dunham announced in her Lenny Letter
newsletter she would be dressing as an abortion doctor, The Federalist reports
"The most successful Halloween costumes are classic but topical, sexy but funny, not too ugly and not too obscure, perfect conversation starters and ideal photo-ops," Dunham wrote in her newsletter. "Still, I want to be accepted and to WIN BIG! And this year, I think I may have finally nailed it. I’m going as something newsy, sexy, and cool: a Planned Parenthood doctor!"
The message includes a photo of Dunham in a white doctor's coat with the Planned Parenthood logo embroidered on it. She is holding a pen and clipboard.
Planned Parenthood has been under fire from conservatives over the past few months after undercover videos were released by the anti-abortion group Center for Medical Progress. The videos appear to show Planned Parenthood officials admitting they sell tissue from aborted fetuses for research.
Following calls by Republicans to stop federal funding for the group, Planned Parenthood said it will not accept payment for fetal tissue.
"While Dunham did announce that she would be dressing up as a Planned Parenthood abortionist for Halloween this year, she has not stated whether she plans to carry around aborted baby body parts for sale," The Federalist wrote.
